    Bryan Lienesch58 - How a duo of geeky gurus like Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder managed to make such a disappointment has to be one of the biggest surprises of the year in movies.

    Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine47.6 - This Superman Reboot, Man of Steel produced by Christopher Nolan, and scripted by David S. Goyer, directed by Zack Snyder embodies all of these essential elements with an emphasis on the alien part of things. The first perhaps 20 minutes of the film is spent on Krypton with Kal-El's parents Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and Lara Lor-Van (Ayelet Zurer), just hours before the complete destruction of the planet. They've just given birth to their son the old-fashioned way, where everyone else on Krypton is genetically engineered in pods to be whatever they are engineered to be, without choice.
